Bobby Layne - 1958 Topps

Robert Lawrence “Bobby” Layne (1926-1986) (QB/PK) was one of the greatest quarterbacks the University of Texas ever produced as he compiled 3,145 passing yards on 210 completing in 400 attempts. He also threw two no-hitters as a pitcher for the Longhorns baseball team. Bobby was named an All-American and was consistently among the Heisman candidates while at UT. The Chicago Bears drafted Layne with the third overall pick in the 1948 NFL Draft. Layne joined a quarterback corps behind Sid Luckman and Johnny Lujack for one season before pushing Chicago coach George Halas for a trade. After spending one year with Chicago and another with the New York Bulldogs, Layne found a home with the Detroit Lions. In his first season with the Lions, Layne led the league in passing yards (2,323) and attempts (336). He again led the league, in his second season with Detroit, in passing yards (2,403), attempts (332) and completions (152). In 1952, Layne took the Lions to the first of three consecutive NFL Championship games (1952-1954) and helped them captured the first of two consecutive NFL League Championship titles (1952, 1953). Bobby Layne was notorious for off-the field antics that flew in the face of general NFL conduct and behavior, but his professionalism, preparedness and extraordinary abilities on the field made him one of the best and most efficient quarterbacks of his era. Bobby Layne played 15 seasons for the Bears (1948), the New York Bulldogs (1949), the Lions (1950-1958) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (1958-1962). He was a two-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection, was named to sixe NFL Pro Bowls and led the Lions to four NFL title games and three NFL League Championships (1952, 1953, 1957). Bobby Layne finished his career with 26,768 passing yards, 196 touchdowns and 243 interceptions and a total of 372 total points over 15 years. Bobby Layne was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1967 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1968.
